    1. I read this mostly to help me improve my Motivational Interviewing skills at work I found some areas in which I need to improve For example, sometimes I end a reflective statement with a higher tone of voice, almost like I m asking a question I also tend to follow an open ended question immediately with a closed ended question, causing the patient to only focus on my closed ended question I need to work on my summarizing too it s not my favorite thing to do I m going to try and read books relat [...]

    2. Have you ever left your doctor s office feeling as if your observations concerns questions about your health weren t fully heard or answered That s our modern healthcare system for you quick, efficient, and sorely lacking in empathy While the basic problem solution approach is great for emergency situations when time is of the essence , chronic sufferers and preventative care patients would greatly benefit from just a few minutes of every day, old fashioned conversation with their medical practi [...]

    3. Although the primary purpose of this book is to define and describe an approach to one to one health care consultations, it is also usefull for reader whose aim is just gain some personal development abilities like me In addition to learn how to motivate people and make them change, personally, I found an opportunity to evaluate the medical doctors behaviours After that book, I undestood why I like some doctors than others It is not just depends on their professionality but also their style of [...]

    4. A good, manageable introduction into Motivational Interviewing for those working in a healthcare setting Having never read the main book or gotten extensive training in MI, I cannot say whether or not this cut out too much of it to be successful However, after reading it I definitely thought it reinforced important skills and provided a good jumping off point I particularly liked the consultation examples provided near the end of the book I don t think reading this book is enough to really get a [...]

    5. There was a bit of a mismatch here for me I am a health counselor, but it is a counselor type of position This book is much aimed for the clinical setting, especially where time with each client is very limited They are directing this book much to Doctors, Nurses and their aids than to someone like me.That said, as a Holistic Health Coach, the concepts set forth are extremely helpful Since my job is to actually coach people through the changes that doctors are guiding them to make, helping kee [...]

    6. A very good book that provides clear information on the concept, principles, tools, and skills of the Motivational Interviewing in general, and its use within the health care context in particular One of the key points the book stressed is the importance of eliciting from patients their own good motivation for making health related behavior change, using various strategies and tools The books explain the overall spirit of the approach in the following points collaborative, evocative, and honorin [...]

    7. For every medical professional who has ever wanted to bang their head into a wall due to patient non compliance despite strong patient understanding of their condition and its risks This book explains so many phenomenon we experience in practice, especially why patients resist making health changes the evidence for the importance of those changes we present Using case based examples this book presents an alternative listening, problem solving based approach that still is fueled by the need for [...]

    8. This book tries to do basically what the title says, present motivational interviewing techniques geared toward a healthcare really primary care setting The information is good and I am a believes in the techniques it was just oversimplified for someone who s already been to trainings and read the original Miller Rollnick book I would recommend this to people who think they need what the title says, but for someone at of an intermediate level with MI, just go back to the original book or head t [...]

    9. This book describes how a social worker, MD, RN or other health care professional can talk to a patient about behavioral changes necessary for improving their health in such a way that the patient is motivated to change This is done through enouraging the person to identify why, how much, and how they d want to make changes, rather than the professional trying to argue, persuade, or guilt them into it The authors, and now I are convinced that this is most effective way to encourage adult patient [...]

    10. I had to read this for one of my classes and the information is helpful However, it rambled and really got hard to follow in the last 1 4 of the book Maybe my motivation was waning and the book was fineI don t know In any case, I learned about motivational interviewing and guidelines on how to do it The examples helped I think the content could have been organized a little better to make it easier to grasp Probably could have cut 50 pages out, too, and not even noticed.

    11. This book is amazing Although the technique takes some practice it can be used in so many parts of life, not just in a medical practice For anyone who wants to improve their communication skills I recommend it

    12. Surprisingly good book if you are looking to improve your communication skills While this book was written for the healthcare provider, I can see it s application across many interactions, including anyone with kids It s a quick and easy read Very informative.

    13. An essential guide for clinicians in every healthcare environmentMI is a tool that has been around for some time, but little taught in academic or clinical settings Do yourself and you patients a favor and read this book.

    14. InterestingI can think of a lot of different ways and circumstances in which this would be useful I would especially recommend it to anyone in social services or medicine.

    15. Great reference for revisiting the principles of motivational interviewing specifically in relation to health care Easy to read and understand, well set out.
